Neither String interpolation nor multi-line Strings are supported by
current Java language, so throwing these in mix promotes the issue into
extending the language. Not fun.

In addition, Multi-line Strings is purely a syntax issue, not the
bytecode interface one, and so it seems rather unrelated.

Is String interpolation thought as the syntactic sugar for string
concatenation? If so, then the proposed bytecode interface is enough to
cover this case as well, should that lang feature ever arrive.
